“A lot of children are limited by the knowledge they get from the adults around them. It's important that we intervene and give them the education they might not be getting somewhere else. Children need healthy, pain-free mouths. It affects how they learn an dhow they eat. It's all connected to the rest of the body.” -Julie Myers, RDH
